  • The School Year Pick-Up

    Jimmy Tricco
    On Compass Day, I teased the freshman parents about the ways in which they navigated the first day of school drop-off. There were the slow, “driving-away-while-snapping phone-photos” parents who watched as their children entered the raucous gang of cheers. Then there were the “walk-you-halfway-to-the-entrance” parents who gently nudged their children to the aforementioned raucous gang of cheers. Finally, there were the “you-can’t-stop-me-I’m-coming-in-too” parents who accompanied their children through the pandemonium of welcome. Each method beautiful to behold.

  • Love Ignites Hope

    Sajit Kabadi
    Welcome back everyone. I hope all of you enjoyed the summer and created some wonderful memories with loved ones. This week our entire staff gathered together for our annual back-to-school festivities beginning with our day-long retreat on Tuesday at Our Lady of Loreto Parish. We spent that day and the rest of this week praying, reflecting and dialoguing with one another on our theme for this school year: Igniting Hope.

  • Special Moment in Time

    David Card '87
    People who are familiar with Regis Jesuit High School hear the word Kairos quite a bit. Indeed, our Kairos retreat program is often identified by our students, alumni and their parents as one of the most transformative experiences they had during their time at Regis Jesuit.

    We often talk about the meaning of the Greek word Kairos as “the Lord’s time.” While a faithful, pragmatic person might ask, “When isn’t it the Lord’s time?” (True!) For us the word carries specific meaning for our program and community.

  • My Plastic Jesus

    Hannah Smith '20
    Last semester, my freshman year theology teacher introduced me to what has quickly become one of my favorite movies: Cool Hand Luke with Paul Newman. Our conversation about the film started after I donated a game to his classroom that I had picked up in Estes Park over the summer. It’s called “I Found Jesus,” and it is similar to Elf on the Shelf, except instead of hiding an elf, you hide a small plastic statue of Jesus, and whoever finds it must shout, “I found Jesus!” Points are awarded in loaves and fishes; they multiply the more you seek and find plastic Jesus. It felt like an apt game to give the teacher who first helped me find Jesus, not hiding in the corner of a bookshelf or under a stack of paper, but enthroned in the hearts of the people around me.

  • The Heart of a Champion: Missy Returns to Regis Jesuit

    David Card '87
    What a proud a gratifying moment this week when our most famous alumna, Missy Franklin ’13, came home for a visit. And despite the fact that we are talking about a six-time Olympic medal winner, five of those gold, Missy’s address to our students was not about her athletic achievements. Rather, it was about her humanity and vulnerability. Missy came to talk about her struggles with anxiety and depression–something many of our students know plenty about. About one in five teens today experience depression.
